Attack Heart Disease

Heat disease remains the number one killer of all Americans. The typical American diet and sedentary culture have created a myriad of problems for our heart. Here are 4 quick ways to start fighting back!

1) Exercise Daily – Exercise does not mean putting on all of your hippest workout clothes, taking protein shakes and joining expensive gyms. Exercises can ne as easy as a brisk walk around the neighborhood with your significant other!

2) Fight Triglycerides – High Cholesterol is a major factor in determining heart disease. Reduce triglycerides naturally with Omega-3 fatty acids. Two of the three Omega-3’s are only naturally produced in marine algae. Take a live shot of algae at least once a day to easily keep your cholesterol in check!

3) Avoid Tobacco – Smoke from cigarettes, cigars, and pipes is as bad for the heart and arteries as it is for the lungs. If you smoke, quitting is the biggest gift of health you can give yourself. Secondhand smoke is also toxic, so avoid it whenever possible.

4) Aim for a healthy weight -Carrying extra pounds, especially around the belly, strains the heart and tips you toward diabetes. If you are overweight, losing just 5% to 10% of your starting weight can make a big difference in your blood pressure and blood sugar.
